Happy Three Kings Day! This holiday, also called the epiphany, notes the arrival of the three kings in Bethlehem and is celebrated around the world in different ways (you might already know the New Orleans version, which, naturally, involves cake). Below, some highlights from our users:
A report from Seville, Spain:
"As the parade progresses with drums and music, the floats moved slowly down the main street which is lined with people either side. Those on the floats throw sweets out towards the people on either side. Some of the children on the floats were rather over enthusiastic with their throwing and sweets were hurled out at a great pace. Those who had come prepared carried cardboard boxes and umbrellas to catch the loot; others just scrabbled about of the ground and collected the sweets in carrier bags. I am not really that keen on boiled sweets but still managed to amass quite a big haul of those that landed in my trouser cuffs or at my feet. It was quite a sight to see adults scuttling around grabbing sweets off the floor totally without shame or embarrassment."
